Bottled. Red-orange pour with a dark cream head. The aroma is quite earthy with light cherry notes. The taste is pretty smooth, light hoppy notes with a strong malty tastes, too. The cherries really come out in the finish. Overall a good rye lager, pretty session-able.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear golden beer with a thin white head on top. Aroma is grainy and malty. Flavour has a lot of rye in there, which is actually quite nice. First rye beer with that much rye in the flavor. Flavour last short unfortunately. Decent brew still.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Excellent appearance, great body and thick lasting lace and head. Nice copper color. Malts and hopps in aroma, great hoppy yet not over bitter taste with spice on the back and caramel earthy notes probably due to the rye. Very good American marzen.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Untapped Dallas. Brown pour with a white head. The aroma is very malty with some caramel and toffee notes as well as a hint of rye. The flavor follows suit. There is some light rye but once again the toffee and caramel really come through strongly. I also get a hint of grass and earth from the hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Aroma is caramel malt and the smell of bread or cracker type malt. The flavor is malt forward with the caramel and toffee and more bread in the main body / flavor. Doughy. The malt is balanced with a crisp grassy hop. Carbonation is moderate, finishes dry. Nicely brewed beer and gets me in the mood for the style.
